“In 2015, I started my Certificate II in Animal Studies and completed it in September of 2016. Once I have finished my schooling, I aim to start my Certificate IV in Vet Nursing to become a fully qualified vet nurse. I started working here at Greencross part-time after completing my Cert II where I get to play with puppies, kittens and save the world one animal at a time! I have lived in Townsville my whole life and love spending time playing sport and exploring the outdoors; while also enjoying spending time with my large fur-baby Nutmeg (horse).
After spending lots of time as a part of the Greencross team.
I have discovered a passion for puppy preschool, emergencies, surgery and customer service as well as a newfound interest in cats which I was never expecting!”

Hi, I’m Ashley! I am originally from the UK, living in both Germany and England before moving to Townsville when I was thirteen. I began my veterinary career as a School Based Trainee at Greencross Vets Willows during high school. From there I continued employment after graduating school and went on to complete my Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing and working at Greencroos Aitkenvale at the 2IC. When the opportunity arose I gladly accepted the position as Practice manager at Greencross Hyde Park. I’m also very passionate about developing well-mannered family-friendly dogs and run puppy school classes where I train dogs in basic manners. When I’m not in the clinic, youll find me spending time with my three fur-babies, a Ridgeback Cross named Betty who I have had since she was orphaned at two weeks old and Reggie the cat and the newest addition is my giant puppy Bruce the American Bull Dog cross.

Finally the cold got to her and she escaped back to sunny north Queensland in 2011 as a locum vet working at all the practices.
